Water sports abound in Plumas County within its more than 100 lakes and 1,000 miles of streams.
Water skiing, boating, sailing, kayaking, paddle- boarding, windsurfing, jet skiing and swimming are among the more popular water sports available at the larger lakes, including Almanor, Bucks, Antelope, Little Grass, Gold, and Frenchman. (Lake Davis does not allow jet-skiing.) Boats and equipment may be rented from Bucks Lake and Lake Almanor. There is also a jet ski rental out of Chilcoot with delivery to nearby lakes (see High Sierra Adventure Rentals below).
Swimming is also
popular at some of the smaller lakes, including
Butt Valley Reservoir, the Lakes Basin area and
the Graeagle Mill Pond, which has an adjacent
facility with non-motorized watercraft rentals.
